    @sebeid - see the "related" links to the right of your question. – Max Vernon Nov 6 '15 at 18:27

Try connecting to 311SQLI01,1430. If that works, turn on the SQL Browser service.

SQL Browser needs to be turned on for port number translation ( it's off in your screenshot ) and you don't seem to be referencing the specific port in your connection attempts.
